A sustainable solution for surplus office furniture

We all have an obligation to be responsible to our environment and to assist in creating a circular economy. Every day, tonnes of surplus office furniture is dumped into landfill, reflecting the ‘take, make and waste’ way of operating. This is expensive, inefficient and harmful to the environment. Instead, at green furniture hub (GFH) we manage the redistribution of this furniture back to where it is needed. Why is this important? Check out our mission.

Here’s how it works

When you plan to move, GFH will catalogue, photograph and grade every surplus item. It is then displayed on our website and made available to other organisations for a modest access fee, and free to charity organisations.

OK, I’d like to:

GET SOME FURNITURE

You can be browsing free furniture in minutes and could even be using it within just a few days.

Let's do it!

OFFLOAD FURNITURE

It just takes a minute to register and we will be in touch to discuss a proposal within one business day.

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to help create a zero-waste economy. We are committed to providing a sustainable, smart and creative solution for the reuse of surplus office furniture.

It’s estimated that each year corporate office refurbishments throughout Australia generate more than 30,000 tonnes of loose furniture ‘waste’. Yet, on average, only 18% is recycled and 2% reused – despite these items often being in good operational order and inherently high in value. As an industry, we can and must do better than this.

“I was alarmed by the amount of surplus material generated by businesses in transition, from growth, downsizing, relocating or rebranding. The amount of perfectly serviceable office furniture which ends up as landfill is truly unacceptable. That’s why I founded green furniture hub. To make it easy for organisations to choose the sustainable alternative.”

– Rajiv Midha, Founder GFH, Director Goals A+N, corporate relocation specialist.

Get in the circle

Economic growth is tied to the consumption of the earth’s finite resources through a ‘take, make and waste’ model. Moving to a circular model, designed to eliminate waste altogether, is recognised as the only viable long-term solution. This creates new ecological, social and financial opportunities for small and large business, organisations and individuals, locally and globally. Including you.
